Halfway into its fourth season, “Summer House” has never been better.
The Bravo reality show centers on group of 20- and 30-somethings living together in a Hamptons share house and, though it took several seasons for it to find the right cast of New Yorkers, it has resulted in some the most genuinely entertaining drama on of any of the shows currently airing on Bravo.
It’s also provided some of the funniest moments, too, particularly involving Paige DeSorbo, a fashion influencer, and her best friend in the house, comic Hannah Berner. Both Paige and Hannah joined “Summer House” for its third season, following a major cast reshuffling and, since then, viewers have been vocal about the enjoyment they’ve taken out of watching their friendship continue to blossom on camera.
In a recent interview with In The Know’s Gibson Johns, Paige said that she “never” expected her connection with Hannah to become such a beloved part of the show.
“It’s so funny, because when Hannah and I first met, we knew that we got along and we knew that we had a very special relationship. Never in our lifetime did we think that people watching the show would pick up on it as much as they have,” she told us. “So, for people to really love who you are naturally — and who your natural friendship is [with] — is the best feeling ever. We have so much fun together.”
But, as loyal viewers of “Summer House” know at this point, Paige and Hannah, who have shared a room in the house for the past two summers, get into a tearful fight at some point later this season, as shown in teasers for upcoming episodes.
While she couldn’t share what their argument will actually be about, Paige did tell ITK that “it gets very heated” between her and her best friend in the house — and it was completely unexpected for everyone.
“This was definitely our first fight ever — on camera, off camera, didn’t matter. This was our first real fight we’ve ever had. You can tell that we both end up crying. It gets very heated,” she shared. “But we are the type of people that — if we feel like the other one is doing something that we don’t agree with, we’re close enough to be like, ‘Hey, I think that’s f**ked up.’ But we’re good enough friends to listen to the other person.”
“The fight was definitely about a boy, which is so not us. And I think you’ll see how we snap out of the fight — because obviously, we’re still friends,” Paige went on. “I think it will be very interesting to watch how we snap out of our fight, because we are so close. But it was very real and raw and emotional. And, I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but even people watching, surrounding us — like our other cast members and everything — people started crying.”
While it remains to be seen what exactly leads up to Paige and Hannah screaming at each other poolside, one thing is for sure — they’re “still best friends,” so viewers will get some sort of resolution.
